The nation's two largest professional associations in aging—the National Council on Aging (NCOA) and the American Society on Aging (ASA)—are collaborating again to offer the most dynamic educational conference and networking opportunity in North America for professionals in the field of aging.
The impact of an aging America is affecting every facet of our society—from major workforce challenges, to financial security for older adults, to the impact of aging on the healthcare delivery system, and more. Every 7 seconds someone in America turns 50. The number of people over age 65 has grown tenfold since the turn of the last century. Where do you go to find out what’s new, what works, and how you can make it work to respond to the ever-growing demands? Come and discover the answers, the experts, the research, the best practices, and the most comprehensive educational offerings available for professionals in aging and healthcare—with more than 600 educational sessions organized with you in mind.
Join us for Aging in America, March 26-30, 2008, when a diverse, multidisciplinary community of more than 3,500 professionals from the fields of aging, healthcare, and education—along with business leaders from across the United States—convene in our nation’s capital, Washington, DC. Join them to learn, to network and to discuss the issues we’re all facing today, and leave the conference with the new ideas, new insights and new connections to make you more effective in your role. Come with a team because our conference features programs for everyone along the continuum of care of services for older adults. Learn together as a team, and go back to your organization and work more effectively together. Or come alone and be inspired by the work of those featured in our program. Go home reenergized.
Because 2008 is an election year, there is no better time for our collective voices to be heard in Washington regarding the critical issues in aging. Plan to attend our Capitol Hill Day on March 26, when we join together on the Hill to meet key influencers and to have our voices and our issues heard. From Capitol Hill Day to the four-day conference itself, you’ll be part of an inclusive forum for dialogue, debate and the sharing of knowledge among professionals in the aging field, with other leaders and key influencers in Washington, DC. As we each work to meet the needs of the older adults we are dedicated to serving, we do so knowing the pressure to be the best never ends—and that the demands stretch our hearts and our minds. But there ARE answers to these many challenges, and many of those answers will be found within this conference. We look forward to welcoming you to Washington, DC—and to Aging in America.
